Gave the perfume room a clean up this week. Created some space and reorganised the two major trays of current favourites. So while I still wore some old favourites you will se a bunch of new and different stuff. Got to hang with a bunch of our mates and had some serious Netflix time. What a lovely week.
Could this be a dream come true for you? Louis Vuitton is doing letter charms or pendants. So if you got a load of shit for Christmas and wanted to gift yourself something fabulous, maybe a little trip to Vuitton could be in order….
Landing in a new city is both thrilling and daunting. Yes, you want to have your own authentic holiday experience but you also don’t want to miss a few of the reasons where you are going is popular, right? Jin is our Master Holiday Planner. He does the research, finds the hotels online and then goes into the Travel Agent armed with his top 3 and the best prices he can find online, he scopes the area and picks a few Must Do attractions and the rest of the time we walk. Yes, you read it here first folks, we WALK, often 12 hour days walking. He also prefers to take the local public transport, every time we reach a destination he says, “See, we are SO LOCAL” and he is happy. How can you deny such simplicity? I certainly can’t.
Travelling with him is fun and exciting, always full of wonderful adventures. My travelling was always about meeting friends, hanging out and once upon a time doing the club scene. Both ways are fun.
Here is a FABULOUS new helper for those that love to travel. Thank you Louis Vuitton.
As you may know Jin has accepted a new job and we have bought a new abode. Very exciting times and because we are unsure of when we’ll next be able to travel (probably January 2016 UK & Europe) we have decided to bring our November family visit forward to NOW, leaving Wednesday. We’ll do a few days in Singapore, where neither of us have stayed other than the airport, with one of my longtime girlfriends Julie and then go on to South Korea to celebrate Jin’s father’s birthday. We are taking them away to the West side of South Korea for a couple of days, their first holiday in years.
In under 3 minutes Louis Vuitton is about to show you a couple of things in Singapore that you probably never thought of doing, and a few on everyone’s lists.
No matter what style of travel you choose, backpacker to 6 star, there are always a few “Must See” destinations in every city you land, disembark or alight. Of course I have been to cities and not seen them all, often unwittingly or because I’ve been working in the clubs and our hosts have taken us to do very low key local stuff instead (equally valid way to see a city but very different). Louis Vuitton always manages to pick a couple of things I’ve not done in the city or did too quickly to enjoy.
Whether you love to travel or you love to watch short pieces about travel then the Louis Vuitton Travel Guides are excellent under 3 minute extravaganzas of interesting things you’d probably never think to do when traveling to particular cities, and new ways to look at the city when you get there.
Sorry this is late! As you already know I love the Louis Vuitton aesthetic and the fun they have with their advertising often has me smiling at their audacity, quirkiness and general bonhomie. While we await their fragrance let’s look at how they see their customer in an LA setting.
Louis Vuitton has been doing some collaborating and I wanted to show you this fun 1 minute Louis Vuitton Celebrating Monogram Collaboration Video. Asking some super great designers, artists and innovators to take their monogram and make something entirely special and new. I think you’ll be suprised with some, desperately want others and be impressed by the sometimes discrete, sometimes overt, pushing of boundaries.
Sometimes advertising people reach into me and grab one of my key concepts. This then makes me feel like I’m part of a movement, that I belong, part of a thought process that could become a credo. It’s extremely clever marketing and I wonder how many other people are taken in by it too. The feeling that a multi national profit driven money making machine is a part of you, or that it is riding the same wave as you. Interesting, and repulsive and gently alluring all at once.
Louis Vuitton has reached into me and grabbed “To Travel Is To Live” from deep inside me and created a film.
Here is what the Louids Vuitton people have to say: A new Louis Vuitton advertising campaign conjures the original spirit of travel for the next generation. The allure of the unknown, the thrill of exploration, the wonder of discovery — all are captured in a series of stunning images, shot in South Africa by Peter Lindbergh, styled by Carine Roitfeld, and starring models Karen Elson and Edie Campbell.
